Grandma Swank's Recipe Box
My Grandmother Frances Swank passed away at age 88. I took all the recipes from her recipe box that she had accumulated over the years and put them into a book entitled Grandma Swank’s Recipe Box. I gave the books to relatives and it’s a best seller of all my 16 books. Grandma and Grandpa Swank had a dry-land wheat farm near Coulee City. When harvest time came Grandma would wake up early and start cooking on her wood-burning stove for the 20 plus crew. She would make homemade bread and home-made pies as well as the main course with all the trimmings to be served the harvest crew at the main meal of the day which was lunch. When the depression came Grandpa turned the horse team loose in the fields and drove away, never looking back. Pioneer women shared their favorite recipes.Here is the Amazon Page https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss/154-2966555-6437445?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=Grandma+Swank%27s+Recipe+Box
